It’s time to talk about the subject that you will spend the most time in the Paris travel guide. I say that you will spend time because museums and palaces, especially the Louvre, are not in a structure to be visited in 1-2 days in terms of content. For this reason, it may be more beneficial for you to make a good planning, or even to divide your Paris trips into themes.
Speaking of museums and palaces, when Paris is mentioned, you can write the Louvre, one of the first places that comes to mind, along with the Eiffel Tower, and Orsay, whose most important collection consists of impressionist paintings.
Among the palaces, Luxembourg and Versailles attract attention with their magnificent architecture and gardens stretching across acres.
The world-famous Champs Elysées Street stretching between the Arc de Triomphe and Concorde Square is one of the iconic places of the city with its shopping and social opportunities.
For those who care about architecture, I can list the places that should be seen outside the palaces as Notre Dame Cathedral, Sacre Coeur Basilica, Opera House and Pantheon.
Sainte Chapelle, which hosts holy relics, and Les Invalides, where Napoleon Bonaparte’s tomb is located, are among the structures that enrich the city with their architecture.
When you want to be intertwined with art and cultural activities, you can turn your route to the Pompidou Center, named after the former president of France.
When it comes to entertainment, the Moulin Rouge within the borders of Montmartre comes to mind, while the Paris Catacombs show another face of the city to its guests. Pere Lachaise, which was opened in 1804, resembles an open-air museum with its sculptures rather than a cemetery.
You can find detailed information and photos about the places I mentioned above in our article titled “Places to Visit in Paris”.

Tour Reservations: Paris is a very touristic and popular city. Tickets for activities in the city can sometimes be sold out days in advance. For this reason, I recommend that you buy the entrance tickets for important places from the internet before your trip and register for the relevant tours.
